Executive Summary

In this paper the authors present a way of hiding the data in mobile devices from being compromised. They use two level data hiding technique, where in its first level data is encrypted and stored in special records and the second level being a typical password protection scheme. The second level is for secure access of information from the device. In the first level, encryption of the data is done using the location coordinates as key. Location Coordinates are rounded up figures of longitude and latitude information. In the second phase the password entry differs from conventional schemes.
